My boyfriend and I have been dating for about two months now. He always says things like "I like you," "I like being with you," "You're pretty."
BUT the last time I was with him he was saying all of the above in a list while kissing me and then he muttered "I love you."
And I was shocked. I just pulled away and said "What?" and he just stared at me before kissing me again.
Do you think it just slipped up? Did he not mean it? Because I have only gone out with him for about two months, is it crazy that he said it this early?
I adore him, but to me 'love' comes after sex, after several months of really knowing that person and being with them.
I don't even know how to react?

Understand that kissing and making out and other "sexual stuff" is HUGELY INTENSE for a guy, especially if you're one of the first girls he's ever done it with. He's been thinking about girls for years, and now he finally has one, and it's overwhelming to him. Plus, he is almost certainly infatuated.
The problem is that most people don't really know what "love" really is at that age. They may say it, and even think they're feeling it, but they don't truly undersand what it means. By the time most guys hit college age, they at least figure out that they don't in fact know what love means, and they stop saying it, and the word usually doens't reappear in their vocabulary until their late 20s or early 30s, when they are finally ready for a serious relationship.
So, while he isn't lying (he really believes he feels that way), you need to realize that he likely doesn't understand what he's saying, and so you shouldn't put too much weight on those words right now. He's young, inexperienced, and still trying to figure out who he is and what he wants (and I'm sure you are too), so don't expect "forever" from him; that's unrealisitc at your age.1
